That's it, now you just have to modiy your menu.lst to point to the right partitions!
Awesome :grinning:
Well, I looked and...

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.20-15-generic
root (hd1,3)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-15-generic root=UUID=c72355cb-2c21-44b9-96$
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.20-15-generic
quiet
savedefault

it's the right partition O______O

As far as I know, the other entries work fine.

try issuing
Code:
sudo update-grub
from a terminal.

Ubuntu seems to mangle partition assignments if not installed on hda. Going by your description in the first post Ubuntu is installed on hd1,2. Every time I install Ubuntu I have to edit menu.lst to get it to boot correctly.
Try installing grub to hd1,2 and see if that works. If you install grub to the mbr of hd1 you should be able to boot to Ubuntu by changing your boot device, this will get you into Ubuntu easier than using the cd.
